We went for dinner on a saturday night. We hadn't booked anywhere but picked it because there seemed to be a fair few tables available.

When we got in we were told it'd be a 45 min wait so we went to another pub then came back about half an hour later then went & sat at the bar upstairs. But it was about another half an hour til we got a table (so hour wait in all). When we did get seated, the service was slow and we noticed a number of empty tables around. More people who had been waiting upstairs were sat at them as time went on so it felt to us like they make you wait for no reason as there are plenty of seats (is this to get you to spend more at the bar?)

We each had a starter and a main. The food was good & the portions huge at a decent prize. I couldn't eat it all. I had fajitas which were really nice with a lot of meat.

Overall, food was good but waiting times let it down. The upstairs bar is cute though.

Why the owners decided to do a version (and not a very successful one) of "tex-mex is beyond me. The p;ace looks prefect for either good old English pub food or a small Italian. Having said that, both me and my girlfriend ate our meal, it was just that it all felt a bit weird.

As York residents, we have been going to Plunkets for almost 30 years and we have never been disapointed. Plunkets is one of the few places in York that can be relied on to deliver good, tasty food in convivial, relaxed surroundings with friendly staff. It doesn`t seem to change at all and is a reliable constant where other restaurants seem to come and go. For a small independent restaurant that is consistently good it`s worth supporting and a change from the countless chain restaurants which you can find anywhere. It`s not the cheapest but the early bird menu is good value and what would you expect within literally a stone`s throw of The Minster!

My husband and I had dinner here last night and was pleasantly surprised. We opted for the early bird dinner special including a glass of wine or beer and we thought it was good value for money! We ordered the Falafel Burger and the Chille Con Carne. Both dishes were very tasty!! This is an interesting restaurant with pictures of past and present actors and pop stars on the Walls. They had 60's music playing also which added a certain style to the restaurant. Give it a try - we enjoyed it as it was different!
